Jersey Number Plates
Jersey registration plates consist of the letter 'J' followed by one to six digits. Registrations may now incorporate the Jersey coat of arms in a white strip on the left hand side of the number plate, along with the country identifier 'GBJ' (Great Britain - Jersey). This design is similar to the EU standard plate but does not incorporate the European flag as Jersey is outside the European Union.
Hire cars registered on Jersey have a silver letter 'H' on a red background on the left of the registration plate.
The prefix 'E' is used for cars that are temporarily imported to Jersey before being shipped on again.
Jersey trade plates have white letters on a red background and are made of a flexible magnetic material. These plates are for use only by registered motor traders on any unregistered vehicle being used in connection with the business of that motor trader.
Cherished plates with the format 'JSY' followed by one to three digits, are considered very desirable and so are auctioned by the Jersey Authorities.
The new registered keeper purchases only the right to display the registration number rather than outright ownership of it.
